Carpentry Instructor Marshall Janifer was a dedicated CTE teacher,
mentor, guidance counselor and role model for students in the Academy
of Construction and Design at Cardozo Education Campus. He often
said his proudest achievement was motivating students to want to
become decent human beings and successful adults. The Marshall Janifer
Memorial Scholarship Fund was established at the request of Mr.
Janifer's family, following his sudden and untimely death in January
2014. These scholarships are awarded to outstanding students in
the Academy’s career and technical education programs. Your
generous contribution honors Marshall Janifer’s legacy and
continues his vital work. Donate
